Large parts of the Quetico-Superior region are protected — 2.5 million acres in Superior National Forest, Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, Voyageurs National Park, and Ontario’s Quetico Provincial Park. But threats from proposed sulfide mining and climate change loom over the area's vast waterways and boreal forests.
The Sierra Club is working to:
- Prevent proposed sulfide mining across Minnesota’s Arrowhead Region that would threaten Lake Superior and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness,
- Support development of a scientifically-based blueprint for climate-smart conservation and management practices in the Quetico-Superior,
- Create public demand for protection of moose and Canada lynx habitat, and
- Limit damage to Minnesota’s forests and wetlands from emerging threats.
